Coming off their first appearance in the AFC Championship game since the 1993 season, the Buffalo Bills are set to begin training camp on July 28 with sky-high expectations.

On the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast, hosts John Boccacino and Jamie D’Amico discuss the players/positional battles/aspects of training camp they are most looking forward to.

Those topics include:

  • Tight end Dawson Knox and whether his offseason work, including seeing a performance vision coach to help improve his hand-eye coordination to combat the drops, will pay dividends and help him take that next step forward.
  • The Bills started the same offensive line the final eight games of the 2020 season, but third-year player Cody Ford is considered the favorite to win the starting left guard job. Can Ford can live up to his second-round draft status and secure one of the guard spots, or will Ike Boettger reclaim the job.
  • Cut-down day, specifically how general manager Brandon Beane constructs this roster and what he does with the plethora of talent along the offensive and defensive lines who don’t make the 53-man roster. It’s a good problem to have, and Bills fans should rest easy knowing Beane will be able to get value in trades when dealing these cut candidates.
  • Whether second-year cornerback Dane Jackson can unseat incumbent CB2 starter Levi Wallace.
  • Bonus shoutouts to WR Isaiah McKenzie and TE/fullback/special teamer Reggie Gilliam
